The first task of the mapping configuration is to map an adapter instance or an authentication policy contract to your connection.
To map an adapter instance, follow these steps:
Select an adapter instance from the list.
If you do not see the desired adapter instance, click Manage Adapter Instances to create a new instance of any deployed adapter.
Select the Override Instance Settings check box if you want
to customize one or more adapter settings for this connection alone.
When selected, the administrative console adds a new set of sub tasks (the Override Instance screen and its sub tasks).Tip:
Alternatively, you can create child adapter instances of a base adapter instance (with overrides) so that such customized settings can be applied to several connections. For more information, see Hierarchical plugin configurations.
- Select an adapter instance from the list.
To map an APC, select an adapter instance from the list.
If you do not see the desired APC, click Manage Authentication Policy Contracts to create a new policy contract.
If you are editing a currently mapped adapter instance, you can toggle the Override Instance Settings setting. Clearing it removes all previously overridden settings for this connection. Selecting it provides you the opportunity to customize adapter settings specifically for this connection.
If you are editing a currently mapped APC, no changes can be made on this screen.
